The sailing qualities of this French pocket cruiser proved so popular that she’s also been built in Japan and Australia.
It’s not surprising that the Ecume de Mer established Finot’s reputation, nor that her production life was so long and that she sold in the hundreds. With a gorgeous sheerline, exceptional performance upwind, sharp handling, beautiful balance under sail and good seakeeping, she’s a true thoroughbred. At today’s prices this gallant little cruiser is an offshore bargain. However, she’s not a comfortable caravan – you can rule her out if you plan to spend more of your time aboard in harbour than at sea.
